After linking up with Fred Perry for a collaborative selection of Weejuns early last year, G.H. Bass returns for 2021 with two takes of its Ranger Moc Wallace shoe.
Known for introducing the first ever penny loafer back in 1936, G.H. Bass & Co. is renowned for its high-quality craftsmanship and expert eye for detail in the world of casual footwear. With a history dating back to 1876, the brand’s footwear has been worn by a host of stars, while more recently they’ve worked alongside the likes of Universal Works and Engineered Garments for a variety of collaborative releases.
Now the Maine-based label showcases its Ranger Moc Wallace in two new sleek iterations. Handmade in El Salvador, the first take is made from an oil-rich “Dark Tan” resin suede that’s been hand-stitched with a natural welt and is complemented with tonal laces and seams.
The second variation arrives in “Mid-Brown” pull-up leather that’s been designed to develop a worn-in aesthetic in time. Featuring two distinct eyelets and natural hand-sewn stitching, each shoe sits on a lightweight EVA lug outsole, resulting in a moccasin-style silhouette that’s as smart as it is casual.
Both takes of the Ranger Moc Wallace are available to buy now from the G.H. Bass webstore.
